This is a Taiwanese Dragon Boat. This is the designated “flag
grabber” who has reached out too far. In this race – your
team must grab the flag to finish the race. This team did not
grag the flag.
Taiwanese Dragon Boats were donated to the City of Vancouver in
2004. The first Taiwanese Dragon Boat race took place 10 days
after the boats arrived on Sep 6, 2004. Olympic gold medalist
Lori Fung grabbed the first flag in a demonstration race.
A 2 day race event is being held Labour Dav Weekend Sept 4 & 5, 2004 – at the Plaza
of Nations, as part of the award winning Taiwanese Cultural Festival.
